WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that near record highs are possible going into the weekend with more dry weather expected across the Plains. Temperatures continue to be well above normal for the area and won’t likely change until the beginning of next week.

Expect a clear sky into Friday with lows in the 40s and 50s. Strongest winds Friday afternoon will be over central and south central Kansas with gusts above 30-35 mph. Look for highs to be near 90 once again.

The wind scales back for Saturday, but temperatures continue to be hot. Mid to upper 80s will be quite common for the afternoon.

Windy and hot weather returns for Sunday before the next cold front brings us back to October weather heading into next week.
